Florida International Deals USIU 14th Defeat in a Row

U.S. International lost its 14th consecutive game Monday by losing to Florida International, 106-94 in Miami.

Kevin Bradshaw scored 59 points, 37 in the second half, and shot three of six three-pointers for USIU (1-18). Isaac Brown scored 16 points for USIU. He also pulled down 13 rebounds, while Bradshaw chipped in with 11.

Bradshaw’s 59 points broke a three-year-old Golden Panther Arena record of 45 points set by Ledell Eackles, who played with the University of New Orleans and is now with the NBA’s Washington Bullets.

This game snapped six-game losing streak for Florida International, which was led by Dwight Stewart, who scored 25 points and had a career-high 14 rebounds.

The Golden Panthers had a 53-40 halftime lead.

X-rays revealed San Diego State forward Nelson Stewart has a sprained ankle, SDSU trainer Mark Haines said Monday.

Stewart was injured in SDSU’s game at Colorado State Saturday when Ram center Wagner Manna came over the top of him for a rebound. Stewart went down with what looked like a serious injury. Haines thought at the time that Stewart may have had a small fracture.

Stewart, who is averaging just under two points a game, will be out today and attempt to practice Wednesday, Haines said.

“With any luck, he will play on Thursday,” Haines said.

Meanwhile, Haines said that forward Keith Balzer, who has tendinitis in his knee, may return to practice later in the week. Balzer started five of six games in which he has appeared this season and is averaging 7.5 points a game.
